Everything tastes better in the backcountry. Fact. To bump your trail gourmet status to the next level (and impress your hiking buddies beyond measure), try whipping up a batch of Backcountry Tiramisu. Backpacker magazine provides you with the recipe (below) and a great how-to video.
Backcountry Tiramisu Serves 2-3
1/3 cup water 2 tsp instant espresso powder 2 Tbsp Kahlua (get one of those mini bottles from the liquor store) 3.4-oz packet of instant white chocolate pudding 2 cups milk (use 2/3 cup powdered milk plus 2 cups water) 16 Ladyfingers cookies Dark chocolate
1. Heat water to a boil, then mix in espresso and Kahlua. 2. Make pudding according to package directions. 3. Place six ladyfingers in the bottom of a pot, drizzle with half of the espresso mixture, then half of the pudding over it. Repeat to form a second layer. 4. Use a pocketknife to shave thin strips of chocolate on top and serve.
